Roman Romero-Ortuno is Associate Professor in Medical Gerontology at Trinity College Dublin and Consultant Physician in St. James's Hospital, Dublin.

In 2002, he graduated from University of Barcelona with a degree in Medicine, and in 2003 he completed an MSc in European Social Policy at the London School of Economics and Political Science. He has a music degree from the Conservatory of Barcelona. His basic postgraduate medical training took place in Manchester and London and his higher medical training in Geriatric and General (Internal) Medicine was completed in Dublin.

Between 2014 and 2018 he worked as a Consultant Geriatrician in Addenbrooke's Hospital (Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust) and during that time he held an Honorary Visiting Fellowship to the Clinical Gerontology Unit of the Department of Public Health and Primary Care, University of Cambridge.

Prof. Ortuno is Faculty member of the Global Brain Health Institute (GBHI) where he brings clinical and academic expertise in frailty, dementia, delirium and comprehensive geriatric assessment. He co-chairs the Frailty and Resilience working group of The Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing (TILDA).

His research contributions in the area of frailty have been recognised with the 2015 British Geriatrics Society Rising Star Award and the 2017 Count of Cartagena Award from the Royal National Academy of Medicine of Spain.
